About the Honorees:

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are the prolific writing and directing duo behind some of today’s most successful films, including, The Lego Movie, 21 & 22 Jump Street and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. In 2014, the duo saw incredible success at the box office and were the only writers/directors with two films ranked among the top highest grossing features of the year. Up next for film, the duo will be directing the highly anticipated untitled Star Wars Anthology. Focusing on a young Han Solo, the feature is slated for a May 25, 2018 release date and will be written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.
